A loan of $450 helped buy small livestock to fatten and sell.

Emma's story

Emma is 43 years old, married, and has 2 children in her charge. She lives in her own house, which is located in Caserio Ayar Uchu, Tambogrande district. Emma lives in the rural portion of the district and still lacks basic services.

The activity she is involved in is raising and selling smaller livestock. Emma fattens them and once they gain weight and reach an ideal size, she sells them in the local market. She has 6 years of experience in the business. Her husband works in agriculture and has 8 hectares of agricultural land. With their incomes, they cover their expenses and attempt to maintain their quality of life.

Emma wishes to buy more small livestock to fatten and, later, sell. This is why she finds it convenient to borrow 1,100 new sols through Edpyme Alternativa to achieve her objective.
